Pinot Gris is revered in Alsace as a super-rich wine that can be partnered
with many different foods. These grapes come from the Couronne d'Or
(Golden Crown), an association of local vineyards and winemakers that run
through the middle of Alsace. The vineyards are sloped with a South /
South East exposure, while the soil is mostly calcareous and thin. The vines
are dry farmed and trained upwards for maximum exposure to the sun.

Pretty yellow-gold hue. A touch of smoke ties together aromas of ripe apricot, pear and minersals. Pleasing, sweet-tart flavors of peach and apple display a banana-like texture. Balanced, fresh, cleansing close.
